Malmsteen to perform in a Fender clinic and sign autographs

Dallas, TX (April 8, 2008) -- As if three days of everything guitar wasn''t enough of a reason to make a trip to Dallas, Fender has announced that legendary shredder Yngwie Malmsteen will perform live at a Fender clinic and participate in an autograph session during the Dallas International Guitar Festival on Saturday, April 19.

Fender has also launched a Malmsteen website at fender.com/yngwie, which points to an upcoming Malmsteen tribute guitar from the Fender Custom Shop. The website features a Stratocaster silhouette with a "Coming Soon" stamp, along with photographs of Fender Custom Shop employees examining a beat-up Strat.

The Strat is an Olympic White 1971 Fender Stratocaster. Yngwie bought the guitar in Sweden in 1978 while still a teenager and performed the unusual and delicate modification of scalloping the fingerboard to help create his signature sound. The guitar has taken a beating over the years (and even a burning or two) as Malmsteen’s main stage and studio guitar.

We''re keeping an eye out for the official announcement, until then, visit fender.com/yngwie for more information.
